Here is proof that there's snow (and Santa!) in Texas. Of course, the Santa suit is rented and the snow is manufactured, but this afternoon it was a winter wonderland in Central Austin as we celebrated the birthday of Scout's preschool friend. Alex was there to help man the sledding station for most of the party while I sipped a bloody mary and marveled at the Texas children going crazy in the snow--I felt like we were on the set of a movie. Tillie, on the other hand, was not into the snow so much. After one slip and landing face first in a pile of cold wetness, she decided the swings were a better option.
